Steve Jobs was a unique and ambitious guy, but anyone whose been reading his Biography book 'Steve Jobs' has heard, he simply hated authority and would do quirky things that would set himself apart from "societies rules".
One thing he didn't talk about with the biographer was WHY he would go around without a license plate on his car.
He didn't believe the rules of society applied to him, but his answer was "You know why I don't have a license plate on my car? Because I don't have a license plate on my car"...
He did also say he just didn't want people to follow him home or draw attention to himself, and the guy asked, well won't that bring more attention not having a license plate??
I think it's just to prove that he could get away with it (and because he didn't like someone or some entity telling him what he could and couldn't do). But I know the question I was asking myself was how would he do this and not get enough tickets to cancel his driver's license out?
If you get 4 points (4 major or moving violations tickets) your license is suspended for a year or more (California)... but Steve did this legally and someone around him clued him in about California law.
